A Cursing Baby Doll? Do You Hear the "B" Word? | Parenting
If your kids are asking for dolls for holiday gifts, you may want to get acquainted with the most recent trend among 'baby doll speak' before finalizing your purchase. Apparently, Toys "R" Us is selling the "You & Me Play and Giggle Triplets," which have caused quite a stir. These baby siblings seem to be babbling most of the time, but yes one of the three sounds like she's saying "hey crazy b***h." (Huffington Post took to the streets to ask people what they hear when the baby babbles. Listen for yourself below.)
Perhaps that wasn't the intent of the manufacturer, but yes these $39.99 cutie pies seem to be mimicking some bad language. And who said kids aren't listening to their parents?
Toys "R" Us does not have plans to pull the dolls from the shelves, but has offered to allow unhappy parents to return the precocious set of triplets.
When I was growing up I had Chatty Cathy. She spoke one of eleven phrases at random when you pulled the string on her back. And she never cursed at me for pulling her string. She said lovely things like "I love you", "May I have a cookie?", and even "Let's play school." I guess that Chatty Cathy was just better natured than the triplets.
